Review for Swan Center Outreach Inc, Silverthorne, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Not only does Swan Center Outreach transform horses and children's lives, but adults as well...and I am one of them!! Stepping foot on their property was the most life altering experience I have ever had and still do. My faith in people-kind was restored as I observed horses healing from previous lives of abuse, neglect and mistreatment. This only happens when there is the presence and demonstration of unconditional love, compassion and devotion to the proper care of animals and humans alike. One's life will be affected in a very positive way no matter who you are and where you came from!!!

Over 25 years ago, my relationship with the Swan Center Outreach began as a volunteer. Now, I am very proud to say, I serve as a board member. I am very humbled to be a part of an extrordinary non-profit, that not only saves horses and other farm animals, but humans alike!

As a result of the horsemanship training I received, I developed greater depths of confidence, awareness and compassion. I am ever so grateful!

Respect, loving care and service are equally matched with regard to the humane treatment of animals and humans alike!! I encourage others to support this one-of-a-kind non-profit organization.

My first introduction to the Swan Center Outreach happened in 1989. It was a very tumultuous time in my life. The Swan Center Outreach serves as a sanctuary and rehabilitation haven for abused and neglected horses/animals. By better understanding the nature of horses and witnessing the kind of loving care they experience at the Swan Center, I have come to know myself. The 40 horses that reside at the Center have been my teachers, healers and friends. It seemed that I was the one who would be caring for them, but it was they who taught me how to be more aware of my behavior, kinder, compassionate, patient and sensitive. At times of great sadness, they mended my heart. When I needed an ear, they always listened. They instilled confidence when I was unsure. In essence, they have helped me become a better "human."

My whole life transformed over 25 years ago. I was taught by horses of the Swan Center how to be a "better human being." A most incredible organization of love, care and healing for both horses and humans alike!!

Role:  Volunteer & Learned how to communicate the needs of humans by learning the language of horses.
